Prince Albert Hunt's Texas Ramblers-Blues In The Bottle


Published March 28, 1928


Recorded on March 28, 1928 in San Antonio, Texas. This recording is considered one of the first of what would be later categorized as "Western" or "Texas" Swing, popularized later by Bob Wills & His Texas Playboys. The style is a unique amalgam of blues, ragtime, jazz and old time fiddle music. Michelle Shocked claims that Prince Albert Hunt chose to live "on the wrong side of the tracks." He was shot to death outside of a Dallas bar in March of 1931.

Subject: Only the 1920s-30s are as 1960s as the 1960s!
I knew this song off the Lovin' Spoonful's first album, in a good electric version; this album, although now most remembered for the "Peter Pan" hit "Do You Believe In Magic", has arrangements of other old blues such as "This Sportin' Life" and "Wild About My Lovin'". No wonder the Lovin' Spoonful, kings of "good-time music", wrote and recorded an ode to "Jug Band Music"!
